Biomass to Biofuels Book Review:

Focusing on the key challenges that still impede the realization of the billion-ton renewable fuels vision, this book integrates technological development and business development rationales to highlight the key technological.developments that are necessary to industrialize biofuels on a global scale. Technological issues addressed in this work include fermentation and downstream processing technologies, as compared to current industrial practice and process economics. Business issues that provide the lens through which the technological review is performed span the entire biofuel value chain, from financial mechanisms to fund biotechnology start-ups in the biofuel arena up to large green field manufacturing projects, to raw material farming, collection and transport to the bioconversion plant, manufacturing, product recovery, storage, and transport to the point of sale. Emphasis has been placed throughout the book on providing a global view that takes into account the intrinsic characteristics of various biofuels markets from Brazil, the EU, the US, or Japan, to emerging economies as agricultural development and biofuel development appear undissociably linked.

Sustainable Advanced Biofuels Book Review:

This Technology Development Report for 'Sustainable Advanced Biofuels' is an update to the version produced in 2016. Since then, an important new iteration of the Renewable Energy Directive (RED) the so-called 'recast' of (2009/28/EC) has been agreed, although at time of writing not yet officially ratified by the Parliament or Council. It contains a 14 % target for renewable energy in transport by 2030, an increase from the previous 10 % level, with a new advanced biofuels sub-target of 3.5 %. In addition, it has been confirmed advanced biofuels will count double towards the target, however biofuels in Annex IX, Part B will be counted only up to 1.7 %. The production of conventional biofuels will be frozen at national level at 2020 values +1 % but must not go beyond the 7 % level (Member States with a share of conventional biofuels less than 2 % can still reach the 2 % level). The definition of 'advanced' biofuels is not univocal since the term advanced can refer to various attributes of the value chain. In this report, we consider advanced, those technologies capable of converting lignocellulosic feedstocks (i.e. agricultural and forestry residues), non-food and non-feed biomass (i.e. grasses, miscanthus, algae) and biogenic waste and residues (e.g. biogenic fraction of municipal solid waste and animal manure) into transportation fuels and having high greenhouse gas emissions savings, and zero or low indirect land use change (ILUC) impact.

Liquid Biofuels: Emergence, Development and Prospects Book Review:

Bioenergy is coming to be seen as a priority on the international agenda, with the use of liquid biofuels a key strategy in the attempt to meet both the demand for environmental sustainability and the energy needs of countries. The growth in the production and use of biofuels around the world has led to increased interest and discussion about this subject. Given the dynamics of this phenomenon, the organizers of this book, based on more than 10 years experience of joint research on this subject, seek to address key issues relating to the production and marketing of liquid biofuels using the Brazilian experience with ethanol and biodiesel as an illustrative case, as well as the experiences of the leading producers and consumers of biofuels. The topics to be covered in this book include the role of public policies in fostering the emergence of the biofuels industry, the main socio-economic, environmental, technological aspects and the prospects for the sector. The conceptual and methodological bases that provide analytical support to the book are based on recent research published in indexed journals. The structure and content of the book seek to address some central issues regarding: How the biofuel industries have emerged and developed in different countries? What factors have been crucial to the success or failure of different production initiatives? What are the main socio-economic-environmental impacts of the production and consumption of liquid biofuels? How are national and international markets for liquid biofuels being structured? To what extent and/or in what conditions can the experiences and lessons learned at the national level be transferred and adapted in other countries? Finally, based on the scenarios, the prospects for liquid biofuels will be discussed.
